first off, I know nothing about pools/pumps so go easy on me fellas, but I will take any advice I can get at this point. So, the descriptions I give are all that I know when it comes to knowledge of pools.
Pool Background: One skimmer, NO main drain, one jet, and a jacuzzi magnum force pump that is located uphill from the pool, and about 50 feet away from the pool. (we just purchased this house with pool in january, and i've been told that the location of pump could present problems.)
well, I got the pump primed without issue. back pressure was 8-10. It was doing great until I decided to hook up the kreepy krauly vaccum. Like a fool, I did not fill the hose on the vacuum up with water prior to connecting it to the skimmer. I realized what happened about 10-15 minutes later. I shut off the pump, and disconnected the vacuum from the skimmer. At this point, I re-primed the pump. After re-priming it will not achieve a back pressure, and bubbles (not water) are coming out of the jet, and there is no suction happening at the skimmer. Please Help!!!!!! Sorry about the descriptions I gave folks, but it's the best I can come up with at this point in my learning phase about pools!
